    I have been working at Joybird full-time

    Pros

    Before joining Joybird I really didn't think much about furniture, but being here I've learned how big of an impact the perfect sofa can make in a home.

    The things I love about this place:

    -There is a lot of emphasis on personal development. If you aren't constantly learning and evolving your skills – you will get left behind. This challenges me to always be hungry and perfect my craft.

    -Many simultaneous growth projects to work on. You get to work on projects that are going to shape how people buy furniture online for years to come. I personally don't like being at a place that is stagnant and just trying to pay the bills. The last company I worked for was like this and it gets boring real fast.

    -The teams are extremely ambitious and are always trying to challenge the way things are done. Sometimes we fail at our goals, but the atmosphere rewards those who try things to learn quickly. I like that I can come up with a hypothesis and put it to the test and not worry about the repercussions if I'm wrong.

    -We are making an impact to a lot of happy homes. Seeing all the customer photos we receive remind you why we are doing this.

    -I actually enjoy the product. Nothing is worse than working at a company that you aren't a fan of what you're selling. I have a few items in my home and love the look and style of everything. All my friends and family are always asking for discounts!

    Cons

    It seems like we are always having issues keeping up with all of the orders so there are a lot of delays to our customers. This causes some frustrating experiences that I hope can be resolved very soon. Sometimes I wonder if all the effort I'm doing will go to waste if we can't fulfill the orders on time?

    Advice to Management

    Consider opening up another factory since the current one has problems keeping up with all the demand. There are a lot of people who love the product but if you can't make them on time then I'm not sure how far Joybird can grow.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Joybird (Commerce, CA).

    Interview

    Hiring manager barely looked at my portfolio and just wanted to hire me at the cheapest rate. When I said my desired income he just lied and said he doesn't hire at that level. However he said he could increase me when I start. A year later I still did not have any raise.
